Has anyone tried using a computer printer or SCSI cable to connect a turnout control panel to the layout? I'll be controlling 24 Tortoise switch machines. I was thinking of a female recpticle recessed into the layout and a cable with a male end coming from the control panel. Wires from the cables would go to terminal blocks at both ends. That much I can handle. What I'm unsure of is the ability of the wire to carry the current. All of those machines are constantly drawing current, right? If I use a common wire, will that heat up?
